    I don't either, that's the way it comes up for me but I'm not sure what the ""v1 skin" is, or what it would be if it wasn't. :dunno:

    I check those mention things about as often as the seasons change. Almost always I find that the mention either (a) points to something I've already read anyway, or (b) points to something I'm not really interested in.

    That's odd....I usually check all my pms first, and then the mentions are no longer highlighted in the notification area, but it still shows the number and when I scroll down I see they are mentions. They don't disappear for me.

    Scroll down to the bottom left and you can select from the drop down skins v1 or v2...I chose v1 because the colors are more relaxing to my eyes.

    Okay, followed Boops suggestion and after some tweaking did find how to get to the mentions, but sheesh. I won't remember the next time it comes up and probably won't bother to go through all that. And yeah, I probably did misspeak about the mentions disappearing if you click on PMs and rep notifications first. But if you click on one of the mentions, then I don't see any of the others after that if there are more than one.

    Oh, OK. Might go check that out.
    I'm not that interested really -- I just saw the word "skin" next to your name and came running. [​IMG]

    If they refer me to something I wanted to see yes. Otherwise they are more of a nuisance, but not all that big a deal. :)

    I click on something that says new mentions. I don't think I get a notification anywhere.

    I don't mind the mention function. Most times they are interesting threads, but I have no interest in responding. Sometimes I am compelled to respond. If you are annoyed by mentions then clear them and shut up. There is no reason to take it so seriously.
